Hi, nice to meet you!


To make living itself an art, that is the goal.

Henry Miller

I’m Marie Draxler, a twenty-something blogger, creative, and travel enthusiast. Welcome to my online diary where I document my life and talk about beauty, style, travel adventures and the things I learned along the way as a twenty-something, just trying to figure life out.

Over the years, I have called many places my home. Whether it’s been my hometown in the South of Germany, with my second family in Los Angeles, Munich, Venice or Paris and now I am moving to London. I love experiencing new cultures, meeting locals and just staying a bit longer than a normal vacation. My social media channels are a diary of my travels and thoughts on style, beauty (and a whole lotta pug content). I also like to write about things that affect me as a twenty-something woman navigating her life through adulthood and freelancing, whether that’s finding your own path, organization, self-confidence, or work-life balance.

Overall, I love creating in any form. I make art, work on new recipes, sometimes even film videos and take photographs all the time. You can check out my YouTube channel and my Instagram to see what I am up to.

“To make living itself an art, that is the goal.” is one of my favorite quotes by Henry Miller and has turned into my life mantra and the essence of this blog.

Growing up around a beauty professional (thanks mama) turned me into beauty junkie who is happiest when painting, discovering new music or trying the latest skincare products for glowy skin.

As a creative freelancer, I love trying different co-working spaces and cafés around the city. On a Sunday, you can typically find me at a museum looking at art, drowning in a massive oat milk cappuccino or brunching while planning my next trip.

Thanks for checking out my blog! Feel free to drop me a message or leave a comment on my social media accounts, I’d love to hear from you. For business inquiries, email contact@mariedrax.com.
